Trying to Make the Best of a Pandemic

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

I suggest if you are gal in your 70s, and you decide to dance to Native American Indian drumming tunes on your back patio, for a little exercise and escape from Covid 19 isolation, it's important you make certain the music is heard externally, and not only from your ear buds.

The reason I mention this is if a neighbor happens to see you in the midst of this activity, but hears only silence, they may think you are having a seizure and call 911.

Please don't ask me how I know this! But, I think one of these tunes should be relabeled, "The Dance of the Pangolin."

"Native American Drums"

Myrl,

What a fun post, and we have suggested to Trader Joe's that they start a conga dance line, 6 feet apart of course to relieve all the grouchy ones.  A

Peter Mohylsky. The Santa Rosa Beach Expert - Yes, we do! 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - It wasn't a very pretty image though!  I'm blaming it on the distance between the slats on my backyard fencing!  

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - I absolutely love the idea of a Trader Joe conga line dance!

Oh Myrl,

Hahaha, Myrl... this gal in her 70's wouldn't be caught dead dancing on her porch! But I do dance inside my house... husband and pets are used to it so no worries in that regard.

That is just too funny!  My parents are staying at my brother's house and my Dad was telling me that he knocks on his door, but he doesn't answer.  Turns out my brother has his headphones on playing a video game and doesn't hear the knock, haha.

Myrl Jeffcoat - What a hoot! When I lived in IL, I went on a retreat and the theme was drumming. I made my own drum by purchasing deer hide and then making the rim, stretching the hide over the rim and decorating my drum using feathers. Plus, I got to make my own drum sticks too. By the third day, as a group, we listened to drums on  a cassette and drummed to the beat of the drums using our homemade drums. It was so much fun and we danced a Native American Dance too. It felt totally liberating!

Funny, Myrl. But, yes, I would be dancing out on my deck even at 73 years of age. My neighbors would probably join me if they heard the music. :)
